3.0 out of 5 stars The vinyl sounds better 13 Feb 2013
Format:Audio CD
The music on this record is excellent. I remember listening a lot to all its songs when it first came out in the 70's. I own the long play, bought at the time, but I decided, quite recently, to purchase the CD remastered version. I was a bit desapointed with the sound qualitiy as it seems to me that the music lost some of its punch. For example, the acoustic guitars on the first song are too low compared to what I was used to in the vinyl, where they sound bright and clear and not subdued by the keyboards that can be heard in the left channel. Anyway, it remains a great album and I would give it at least one more star if it wasn't for the way it sounds in this remastered version.

5.0 out of 5 stars An overlooked gem 4 Aug 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Having bought 'Short cut draw Blood'(SCDB Jim's 3rd album) all of 37 years ago, I decided it was about time that I investigated his work a little further. Obviously one may conclude that SCDB left me less than impressed, and that may have been the case at the time as it didn't have the same sound/feel as Traffic that I was anticipating, having a poppier song based approach as opposed to the instrumental workouts of Traffic's 70's albums . However, SCDB has stayed with me and gradually earned it's place as a much loved album in my record collection, so it was (rather belatedly) time to delve deeper....which is what led me to Jim's preceding album 'Whale Meat Again'. (Sorry I took so long to get to this point). And I've been missing out on a little gem of an album for 38 years since it's original 1974 release.
Whale Meat has a harder rock sound than SCDB (more in line with the Traffic sound) although the same Muscle shoals rhythm and brass sections and various other musicians are common to both albums, and indeed the Traffic albums of that era. But here it feels like the musicians were left to belt it out live in the studio rather than tightly controlled by a producer's mixing desk, and it's all the better for it. Some belting brass, and searing guitar courtesy of Pete Carr (who deserves to be better known on this evidence) really drive a number of the tracks along. There are also a couple of gentle ballads, which allow Jim's soulful voice to shine. Jim has reigned in some of the excesses of Traffic but lost none of their essential quality on Whale Meat. If you want to dip your toe in the water 'Low Rider' is possibly the pick of the bunch, but there isn't a weak track on the album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Whale Friendly Review 26 April 2000
By Betty Arend - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I had despaired of ever finding this CD but then again I had despaired of ever finding the vinyl before that. I finally found the vinyl and so it was with the CD. I found it here on Amazon.com. This album has always been one of my favorites. From the first song (It's All Right) to the last (Summer Is Fading with the addendum of Vera Lynn's We'll Meet Again) I'm in its thrall. Some of the songs I especially enjoy are listed here. The good time feelings of the bass line and acoustic guitar of It's All Right. The guitar lead and lyrics on the title song give us an image of corruption of the physical world. The reality that material possessions can not return your love and so you become a lonely person is described in I've Got So Much Lovin'. The sense that life continues as the summer fades is given flesh in Summer Is Fading. I have enjoyed both the lyrics and the music throughout the album. I believe that if you like John Barleycorn Must Die by Traffic then you will probably enjoy this album? CD? Whatever...

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Traffic co-songwriter shows his own talents 22 Jun 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is Jim Capaldi's best. "Yellow Sun" is a masterpiece. This album shows just how much capaldi contributed to Traffic. A lot of Traffic fans feel betrayed by the music Steve Winwood has produced during his solo career. Capaldi does not steer away from his traffic roots on this ablum. A must have for any Traffic fan.

3.0 out of 5 stars This isn't Traffic. 13 Feb 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a reasonably well produced album, recorded with some legendary Muscle Shoals musicians but yet it still fails to impress. The material could have been stronger as there really isn't an exceptional song in the bunch. Capaldi is competent but isn't quite strong enough to carry a band by himself. He was at his best assuming the occassional lead vocal with Traffic. Where he attempts to come across as a blue eyed soul/blues man his abilities are really better suited for the medium of rock. Where the musicians are solid enough the material would have benefited from a little stretching out and a few passionate solos. The soloing is good but not inspiring. Overall the disc is o.k., just not essential. Stick with Traffic you'll be better off...Simon

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as... 6 Feb 2001
By Charles Cutshall - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Although inspired at places, this album suffers from the sort of inconsistency you'd expect when a solo performer assembles a different group of sidemen on each track. Sometimes, it works and sometimes it just doesn't. If you like Capaldi's work with Traffic, this will fail to satisfy. On the other hand, "Oh, How We Danced" is a real gem, and if you need some Capaldi, I suggest you go there.

2.0 out of 5 stars In the midst of lesser stuff... 21 Feb 2006
By DM - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Capaldi albums seemingly tend to have one outstanding song in the midst of much lesser material. Actually, WHALE MEAT AGAIN has two. After opening with the wonderfully catchy, memorable "It's All Right", it mostly goes nowhere until hitting the best song, "My Brother". Besides that, "Yellow Sun" is a fairly decent, laid-back number, but it's sabotaged by weak, first-draft lyrics (anyone who ends two "rhyming" lines with the same word really needs to try harder). "Summer Is Fading" blows its potential by staying stuck in a 2-chord progression (for 8.5 minutes). Other tracks range from forgettable to unlistenable.
